• Introduce and apply the entropy balance to various systems.
WHAT IS ENTROPY?
A measure of molecular disorders ormolecular randomness in a system
The larger value of S, the more molecular randomness of particles in the system
The level of molecular
disorder (entropy) of substance increases asit melts or evaporates.
The paddle-wheel work done on a gas increases the level ofdisorder (entropy) of the gas, and thus energy is degradedduring this process.
During a heat

the process is reversible or irreversible.
∆S can be positive/negative depending on the direction of heat transfer:
Q transfer to a system: ∆S increase (+ve)
Q transfer from a system: ∆S decrease (-ve)
A Special Case: Internally ReversibleIsothermal Heat Transfer Processes
This equation is particularly useful for determiningthe entropy changes of thermal energy reservoirs at constant temperature.
A piston-cylinder device contains a liquid-vapor mixture of water at 300 K. During a constant pressure process, 750 kJ of heat is transferred to the water. As a result, part of the liquid in the cylinder vaporizes. Determine entropy change of the water during this process
1. Processes can occur in a certaindirection only, not in any
direction. A process must proceed in the direction thatcomplies with the increase of entropy principle, that is, Sgen ≥
0. A process that violates this principle is impossible.
2. Entropy is a nonconserved property, and there is no such
thing as the conservation of entropy principle. Entropy isconserved during the idealized reversible processes only andincreases during all actual processes.
3. The performance of engineering systems is degraded by the
presence of irreversibilities, and entropy generation is ameasure of the magnitudes of the irreversibilities during thatprocess. The greater the extent of irreversibilities, the
greater the entropy generation. It is also used to
establish criteria for the
performance of engineering devices.
A heat source at 800 K losses 2000 kJ of heat to a sink at (a) 500 K and (b) 750 K. Determine which heat transfer process is more irreversible.
Entropy is a property, and thus thevalue of entropy of a system is fixedonce the state of the system is fixed.

The entropy of a pure substanceis determined from the tables

Where m is specified mass
A rigid tank contains 5 kg of refrigerant-134a initially at 20˚C and 140 kPa. The refrigerant is now cooled while being stirred until its pressure drops to 100 kPa. Determine the entropy change of the refrigerant during this process.
A process during which the entropy remains constant is calledan isentropic process.
During an internally
(isentropic) process, theentropy remains constant.
The isentropic process appears as avertical line segment on a T-s diagram.
Steam enters an adiabatic turbine at 5 MPa and 450˚C and leaves at a pressure of 1.4 MPa. Determine the work output of the turbine per unit mass of steam if the process is reversible.
Liquids and solids can beapproximated as
or known asGibbs equation
since their specific volumesremain nearly constant
during a process.
For an isentropic process of an incompressible substance
Liquid methane is commonly used in various cryogenic applications. The critical temperature of methane is 191 K to keep it in liquid phase. The properties of liquid methane at various temperatures and pressures are given in Table 7-1. Determine the entropy change of liquid methane as it undergoes a process from 110 K and 1 MPa to 120 K and 5 MPa (a) using tabulated properties and (b) approximating liquid methane as an incompressible substance. What is the error involved in the latter case?

Entropy transfer by heat transfer:
Entropy transfer by work:
Heat transfer is always accompanied byentropy transfer in the amount of Q/T,where T is the boundary temperature.
No entropy accompanies work as it crossesthe system boundary. But entropy may begenerated within the system as work is
dissipated into a less useful form of energy. 20
